    This has probably been asked before, but just curious :)
    I have a feeling that it will be the Nigerians though..
    I chose Nubians.

    If its another breed, just type 'Other' and tell us what kind (It only let me have ten options) :wink:

    Others includes Kinders, Mini Manchas, Angora, other minis, mixes, etc.

    It's Mini-Nubians for me since we raise them now, used to raise Nigerians, we have a few Nigerian wethers and Nubian does.

    Aaaawwwww........ Pygoras still haven't made it to the "breed list." :sigh: If going exclusively on the cute factor, I'd have to say Pygoras. But I could be a little biased.

    I agree we are a little outnumbered toth but I think I have to go with my boers. It's a tough decision though. Mini's are cute and dairies are nice ........... but I still go with my boers.

    Very clever Katrina :greengrin:

    I have two Nigerians and one Alpine. I love them all as individuals the same amount, I don't have favorites around here, but if I ever was going to start a larger herd, I would go with Nigerians, since they are super cute, colorful, spunky, and curious. Alpines seem less versitile to me, and are larger and generally more work to take care of, but are still just as loving and have great personalities as far as I have experienced.

    Haha I have been inspired to write some too (though they are not nearly as consice and accurate as yours Katrina)

    Well Im going with the Boers, well put Alaska Boers! They are more laid back than most, the Great White Whales of Land. Ones name is now Baby Beluga *sung in a Grover voice.
    White goats cant jump after they get a certain age. At least not very high.
    But then my first goats were Nubians when the childern were small so they have always had a special place in my heart.
    Those hypnotic eyes as she turns her head in circles while standing on my foot saying "look deeeep into my eyes" begging for a massage gets me every time.

    Nancy that is so funny!

    Sorry MissMM, I had pygora on there, along with all of the other mini breeeds, but when I hit submit it said I could only have 10 options! :GAAH: So, I just kept the basics. I wonder if Stacy or Julie can extend the amount?
